Valmet will supply boiler diagnostics systems to Outokumpu’s Tornio ferrochrome plant in Finland. Two separate orders of six Valmet Furnace Imaging System, Fixed Mount Mid-IR cameras increase the number of cameras in the plant from three to nine. The solution is a critical part of the plant’s process monitoring enabling real-time visual monitoring of the alloy manufacturing, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The cameras are delivered during the last quarter of 2019. The value of the orders will not be disclosed.
Both deliveries consist of three Valmet Furnace Imaging Systems.
